This weekend, Lady Gaga (née Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta) will bring her act to Saturday Night Live, where she'll serve as both host and musical guest of the show. The New York native has been a bona fide superstar since she burst onto the scene with her debut album The Fame in 2008; but she is perhaps best-known for having appeared in a 2009 issue of Maxim. Oh, and also that meat dress. But mostly the part about Maxim.
Check out the just-released SNL promos below - which feature Gaga being Gaga and Kenan Thompson being the worst being Kenan Thompson, and then tell your boss you're "taking 15" to go sit in the supply closet and watch this behind-the-scenes video from Gaga's Maxim shoot.
